Olive Carey

August 27, 1929 – March 13, 2023

Sadly, one of “the originals” on the lake passed away this spring. Olive Carey passed away on March 13, 2023. She and her husband Sean were long time cottagers on Loon Call Lake. You can find her obituary here.

Joyce Cane

July 21, 1942 – March 13, 2024

The families of Michael & Paul Cane are saddened to announce the passing of their dear mother, Joyce Cane. Joyce was predeceased by her husband, Doug, and both of them loved cottaging together on Loon Call since 1988.  Joyce loved her time on the deck visiting with nearby friends and neighbours and was happiest baking her signature treats to share with them during these visits.  She always looked forward to chatting with fellow cottagers, having friends and family come visit, and enjoying the cottage community that beautiful Loon Call Lake offers.

You can find her obituary here.

Doug Cane

20-Apr-1940 – 20-Aug-2023

We are saddened to announce the passing of long-time Loon Call Lake enthusiast, Doug Cane, who some of you might have known. Doug and his wife, Joyce, have been cottagers since 1988 and the cottage continues to be enjoyed by their sons, Paul and Mike, and their families. Doug was happiest when out paddling in his kayak, taking long walks in the woods, lending a hand to fellow cottagers, chatting with neighbours on the dock, and enjoying the cottage community that beautiful Loon Call Lake offers.

A simple service on Monday, August 28 at McDougall & Brown in Scarborough will be held at 10:00 a.m., followed by a reception at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada. You can find his obituary here.

Richard Hubert

June 26, 1954 – March 20, 2023

His parents built their cottage back in the late 1950’s. They passed away back in the 1980’s or 1990’s. Richard and his sister Janet, who survives him, continued to be wonderful neighbours to us.
Richard was a friendly outgoing person. He loved having his friends visit him. He had a long battle with cancer but continued to share his cottage with friends even when he could not be there.
We miss him!

Ingeborg Eidnes

 December 25, 1941 – April 15, 2021 

Ingeborg Eidnes passed in 2021. Her husband, Johannes, sold the cottage and moved to New Brunswick. We were new to the Lake 6 years ago and I enjoyed meeting her and listening to her stories.
